In this feel-good and life-affirming French melodrama, Françoise Fabian portrays a widow reawakening to life's possibilities. The sudden death of her beloved husband leaves Rose distraught and uncertain how to navigate the sunset of her years. Offering little solace, her family fails to see beyond her roles of devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Refusing to fade into oblivion, Rose discovers long ignored aspirations of her own, throwing her family’s equilibrium off balance.  

Featuring a treasure trove of Yiddish and Mizrahi songs, the directorial debut of actress-screenwriter Aurélie Saada - who draws from her Tunisian-Jewish roots - is a tender reminder that it’s never too late to seek fulfilment. 

Winner of the Variety Piazza Grande Award (jury award) at the 2021 Locarno Film Festival.
